I put a rabbit waterer in the brooder to hopefully cut down on having to clean pine shavings and poop out of the water (and not waste so much water). I had tried elevating the waterer but the clever 2 1/2 week old girls really kick up those shavings so it still gets dirty. Trouble is, they aren't trying the waterer out. They look at it but won't peck at it. I tried to show them to peck it by pecking it with my finger and then showing them the drips on my finger. No luck in getting them to try it yet though. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. BTW, I just have to say too that I really appreciate this forum and all the support I've had from it. I am loving having chickens nad couldn't get through it without you guys. Big hug of thanks from Oakland, CA!
